Welcome to the website of František Šusta, PhD., devoted to positive reinforcement animal training method
Why do we say training and not drill? Because the animal is a partner to us, similarly to a sportsman to his trainer, and not a piece of dull substance without own will. The sportsman and his trainer are heading together towards a goal like two partners. The sportsman invests his effort and talent, the trainer shows him the way. The sportsman's goal is at the end of their path. The sportsman drives everything forward, because he wants it, and the trainer only helps him to get to the goal. He knows that no sportsman is identical to another, and he perceives what his charge says and needs. The same should apply to positive reinforcement animal training, and this is what we strive for in this site and in our work.
